Acupuncture has been practiced for over 2000 years and is part of the larger wholistic system known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Although often used for the purpose of pain relief, Acupuncture treats people with a wide range of illness, and helps them maintain a balanced and vibrant life. The focus is to improve the overall wellbeing of the patient. According to Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy known as Qi. Many factors disturb the flow of Qi, and may be physical, emotional, or mental and include: anxiety, stress, anger, fear, grief, poor nutrition, weather conditions, hereditary factors, infections, poison, and trauma. An Acupuncturist will use specific points to open the flow of Qi and stimulate the body’s own healing response to help restore its natural balance.
